I have a box that once had two IP addresses on one interface. I
deconfigured one of them using ifconfig -alias.
Now, when I want to use any (?) program on that box to go over this
interface, it wants to use the addresses which is no longer present. I
double-checked to ensure that there is no NAT in the way, and also used
all netstat and ifconfig otions I know to convince myself that the old
address is gone. I also tried to 'ifconfig ifname inet
the-one-and-only-address' just in case there would be a different
handling of addresses assigned with and without using -alias, but to no
What could that be, and why can't I see this address anywhere?
I'd rather not reboot only to make a change in IP numbers effective...
